Alright, so whenAlive first came out,Scott Sigler included a note asking those who review to be mindful of spoilers and not post them. I would like to do the same thing withAlight, the sequel. Even for those who haven’t yet readAliveI’ll be trying my best to keep out any developments from the first book that led to the second.We again are with Em and the Birthday Children as they continue to make discoveries as to who they really are. They learn more about their past and identities which onl [...]

MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading List***SOME MILD SPOILERS***So they have landed on the planet. I still love Em's character and a lot of the others, but crap on a cracker could someone get rid of Aramousky! This caused me to have a love/hate relationship with the book, but I guess we all have to put up with a jerk every now and then right? :-)THINGS THEY NEED TO DO•Find out if the planet is hostile. •Find out if there are other living beings on the planet. •Find out how to eat contaminate [...]
Loved it, loved it, loved it! Wow, better than the first book. This trilogy does not suffer from the middle book syndrome at all. There is no filler - this is action-packed, plot driven, suspenseful, awesome sci-fi adventure!I loved the kids being on the planet, the things they discover there. I loved the Springers. Em is great. O'Malley, Bishop Aramovsky is such a bastard. A villain that will make you rage, but the suspense was just perfect. All of it. A perfect follow up to AliveIS was just gr [...]
3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/04/02/yOh Scott Sigler, you have to stop writing books where the amazing parts are all spoilers! The things I want to praise and gush about in here would lead to too many plot reveals, so nope nope nope I’m not going to do it. Suffice to say, much like the first book Alive, the less you know going into Alight the better.And that’s not all this sequel has in common with its predecessor. Alight carries on the horror-mystery tradition estab [...]
“Temper us in fire, and we grow stronger. When we suffer, we survive.”----Cassandra ClareScott Sigler, the New York Times best-selling author, pens the next book from hisThe Generations Trilogy called, Alightthat unfolds the story of Em and other survivors who woke up from a closed coffin in a strange and horrifying place, later finding out that they were going to land on a strange planet called, Omeyocan. But this planet turns out to be challenging and deathly as a new nemesis threatens the [...]
Wow. I haven't blazed through a book that quickly in quite a while. It was a fun read. I enjoyed it more than Alive. Things happen a bit more quickly in the 2nd book of the trilogy now that a great deal of the groundwork is done. I won't go into details, but I enjoyed some of the surprises in the story as the "birthday children" find out more about their past and their fate.
I just finished Alight, and am still reeling a bit from that Epilogue! I need Alone now! Wow!Alight picks up right where Alive ends with Em, Bishop, O'Malley, Spingate and the rest of the gang learning to cope with who they are, who each other is, and how to provide for their survival as they explore their surroundings. Sigler does a great job subletly reminding the reader who everyone is that I felt no need to reread Alive first as a refresher (which IS refreshing!). I'm one of those who almost [...]
angelerin/2016/03Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an ebook copy of Alight By: Scott Sigler in exchange for an honest review.Alight started right off where Alive left off and it was so easy to get back into the story. I loved that there was so much ACTION in this one and the ending has made me desperate for the third book to be out already!Em and the group are now on Omeyocan and of course things are not going smoothly. They have to find food, fight for leadership, and deal with new c [...]
GIVE ME THIS I WILL FIGHT FOR THIS BOOK
I expected to enjoy Alight, and I wasn’t disappointed. I’ve already mentioned when I reviewed Alive last year, that I like this series more than the Infected series. Alight is another solid foray into a YA sci-fi survival adventure. Like its predecessor, nothing is held back from the YA audience.Alight covers the gambit of emotions we can expect from people, both young and old: pride, fear, anger, xenophobia, and the idea that people we trust don’t always have our best intentions at heart. [...]
Alight is the second book in the Generations Trilogy by Scott Sigler. Em and the rest of the children arrive on the planet Omeyocan. But things, as expected don’t go seamlessly for Em and the gang. What they find on Omeyocan eventually answers some questions but raises even more questions that need to be answered. There may be some mild spoilers (although I really don’t think so) next so don’t read my likes unless you are OK with that. Things I liked about the book.1) The power struggle be [...]
After reading Alive I anticipated that now that Sigler had the groundwork laid, the second book would be even better. I was right. Unlike Alive, Alight is filled with non stop action. These kids just don't get a break. As if arriving on an alien planet wasn't difficult enough, they have to learn not only how to farm for their future, but they must also perfom medical care, & find fresh water. They must quickly figure out the native species, what is safe, what can be eaten, & what will ki [...]
To be honest, I liked the first book in the series more. I mean, this was good, but I have a real hard time following Sigler's style. It's not the plot that I don't get- it's more his geographic descriptions and how he writes action sequences. I have to read things a couple times and I am always left perplexed. I can't follow what he's saying or meaning, and it's not due to a comprehension problem on my end. Another complaint for me is one I echo with many of these YA stories in today's time. I [...]
A great sequel, even though my extremely high expectations ruined it a bit for me. The last half was amazing, though, and I simply cannot wait for the third one. I highly recommend reading this series.
I really enjoy this book, I like the way the author manages to create something new ins this second book and this ending is just so stressfull. I like it.
Thank you Empty Set Entertainment for the ARC! Scott Sigler brings on a non-stop, nail-biting, roller coaster ride for the second book of the Generations TrilogyALIGHT. ALIGHT begins immediately after ALIVE ends, with Em and the Birthday Children continuing their quest for knowledge about who they are, (and what that means), where they are, and their basic need to survive. Compile this with young adult angst, hormones and power struggles, then top it with a heaping shovel full of trial-by-fire, [...]
What a fantastic followup to Alive, the first book in this series! The author uses a nice technique for reminding the reader what happened in that book - something I appreciated.Again, the group finds themselves in unfamiliar territory - this time a new planet where they face one obstacle after another, be it people or situations. This author really knows how to put his characters through the wringer using conflict and that's one of the reasons this series is so compelling.The cast of supporting [...]
The Birthday Children are Back!! I was so thrilled to get this ARC, the second book in the Generations Trilogy, from NetGalley & it didn't disappoint! Alight starts off right where the first book, Alive, ended. The birthday children are on the space shuttle heading to the planet Omeyocan, their new home. They're still learning who they are and now they're learning about their new home and how to survive on it, which isn't as easy as they were hoping it would be. They all face many day-to-day [...]
I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book and was able to read it early. I have enjoyed everything Scott Sigler has created. Alive was no exception, and I couldn't wait to read this one. I had no idea how this story could progress after the first book, but I couldn't be happier of how this story unfolded. Alight starts right were Alive ended. It did a great job of giving a quick summary to reminded you about the events from Alive. Like the first book there are a few surprises that I didn't s [...]
First off, the version of the book I am reviewing is an Advance Proof I won in a contest.First off, if you haven't read Book 1, please do so before reading this review. There will definitely be spoilers for the first book!!!This book picks up right after the events of Book 1: Alive. The Birthday Children have left the interstellar ship Xolotl on a shuttle bound to the planet they were literally made to live on: Omeyocan. With the threat from the "Grownups" behind them, they must now figure out [...]
Alive was way more engaging for me. There were times when I was totally interested in the story but a lot of times when I couldn't care less. I almost DNF'd this book. It held on long enough for me to not give it a 1. Unfortunately, I don't see myself reading the third book.
A page turner. Alight picks up right where Alive left off and doesn't miss a beat. Sigler has crafted another gripping story full of action, adventure, and romance.
I think I'm not in the mood for this one. It's been a month since I started it, but I'm not making any progress. So it's time to put the book on hold. I'M NOT HAVING ANY PROBLEM WITH THIS BOOK.
Once again I stayed up until 2:00 a.m. reading this, just like I did the first one in the series. What an exciting book, every single page, every single chapter. I love Scott Sigler's writing!!!
Jakiś czas temu sięgnęłam po Alive. Żywi, nie spodziewając się po nich niczego znakomitego. Okazało się jednak, że było całkiem nieźle i, przede wszystkim, zaskakująco. Jakie wrażenie wywarł na mnie tom drugi od Scotta Siglera?Em budzi się w trumnie. Nie takiej zwyczajnej. Bardziej kosmicznej. Wszędzie są dziwne rurki. Co gorsza, dziewczyna nie pamięta, gdzie jest, ani nawet - kim jest. Gdy okazuje się, że oprócz niej w podobnych trumnach zostało zamkniętych wiele dzieci [...]
Wow! How to review this without spoilers? It is very interesting how the story portrays the power of religion, especially in extreme situations. I think this is one of the best things the book has. I want to kick Aramousky in the face, but I won’t deny that he is very interesting to read. I have a soft spot for planet exploration, even more if it has mysterious colossal ruins, so I was very into the story. More questions, more ethical dilemmas, more conflict and new struggles. I devoured it. T [...]
La fin, dynamique, qui permet à l'auteur de s'en donner à cœur joie, dévoile un beau bordel. Je n'ai pas vu venir un tel retournement et c'est hyper encourageant pour la suite. J'ai donc très envie de voir ce qu'il va se passer dans le dernier tome et de connaître le fin mot de l'histoire.Mon avis complet : bloggalleane/2018/01/the
It's actually been less than a year since I read the first installment in Sigler's debut into Young Adult fiction, Alive. So, despite my excitement for reading this sequel, I was a little nervous about not recalling enough of the details since I read the first book in one sitting, at a breakneck speed to match the speed of its electrifying plot. And though the details felt a bit foggy to me, in a few pages, Sigler manages to refresh the memory - and without a clunky summary, but convincingly wov [...]
today I'm bringing you a book that came out today and that I got the chance to read a eARC of it from NetGalley before today. This is book 2 in The Generations Trilogy, I read book 1 last year, Alive and love it, it made it to my favorites list of 2015 so this book has been on my most anticipated books 2016. Ah, let's get to the review? Let's do itEm, Spingate, O'Malley, Bishop and the other youngest have made their way to the planet that was create for them. But once they get there they need to [...]
